Let's see how Kings fans are handling the team's recent developments!

Oh boy.

A Reddit screenshot shows a fanbase in disarray. The Pacers and Kings engineered a big deal Tuesday with the trade deadline looming. Indiana sent Domantas Sabonis, Justin Holiday, Jeremy Lamb and a 2027 second-round pick to Sacramento in exchange for Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield and Tristan Thompson.

Tuesday afternoon, r/kings said "Welcome to Basketball Hell".

"I used to joke around, but I think I might actually be done with this franchise if this news is true," one user wrote.

Another user repeatedly wrote "(EXPLETIVE) THIS TEAM." Another asked "Who's your new favorite team?" while one fan said "trading Tyrese was the final straw for me."

One user said, "Haliburton will be better than Sabonis in less than 2 years, hold me to this." The user continued: "(expletive) this team, (expletive) Vivek, (expletive) Monte the most because we actually TRUSTED HIM and he does this to us. (Expletive) your play ins (expletive) your play offs (expletive) all of this."

The Kings are 20-35 and would currently pick fifth in the NBA Draft — one spot behind Indiana.
